For the Topping:

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter.
  2. Prepare the Meatloaf:
    • In a large bowl, combine ground beef, ground pork, chopped onion, minced garlic, breadcrumbs, milk, eggs, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, thyme, and parsley.
    • Mix well until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
    • Press the meatloaf mixture evenly into the greased baking dish.
  3. Prepare the Potato Layer:
    • In a large bowl, combine heavy cream, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, milk, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper.
    • Add the thinly sliced potatoes to the bowl and toss to coat evenly with the cream mixture.
    • Layer the potatoes evenly over the meatloaf mixture in the baking dish.
  4. Bake:
    • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour.
    • After 1 hour, remove the foil and bake for an additional 20-30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and golden brown on top.
  5. Add Toppings:
    • Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over the top of the casserole.
    • Return the casserole to the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
    • Remove from the oven and sprinkle the crumbled bacon and sliced green onions over the top.
  6. Serve:
    • Let the casserole rest for 10 minutes before serving. This allows it to set and makes it easier to slice.
    • Serve warm and enjoy your hearty Cowboy Meatloaf and Potato Casserole!


  • For extra flavor, you can add a tablespoon of BBQ sauce to the meatloaf mixture.
  • Feel free to add other vegetables to the potato layer, such as bell peppers or mushrooms, if desired.
  • This casserole can be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated. Simply bake as directed when ready to serve.
